An all-girls vampire camping trip turns deadly when a sasquatch hunter is accidentally killed.
All Esma Siban wants this summer is to stay out of her stepmother’s way. When her stepsister, Morgan, suggests a road trip to Oregon to visit a friend from high school, Esma jumps on the idea. A camping trip sounds like the perfect way to help Esma recover from breaking up with her boyfriend. But when Esma and Morgan encounter a stalker, Esma’s fangs come out. The death of a Sasquatch hunter wasn’t on their itinerary. A terrified Esma is unsure what to do next, so she texts her ex-boyfriend for help.?
Chase Wheeler feels like the biggest fool on the football team. The entire time he was dating Esma, he had no idea she was a vampire. In high school Chase did exactly what Esma told him to. He let Esma plan their dates, pick his wardrobe, and even pack his lunches. Now Chase has a month left before he starts college to forget the girl who froze his heart.?
When Chase lands an internship on the popular radio talk show Fred Head, he finds his voice and charts a future that doesn’t involve domineering girlfriends. But all it takes is one text from Esma and Chase runs back to her waiting arms. Chase finds the courage to tell Esma that he’s through with being bossed around right when Esma realizes that she desperately needs Chase’s input. The only way home from this camping trip is to be bitten or smitten.



Esma could mess with me with just one phone call. Otherwise, why would I be out here in the boonies listening to a sasquatch snore?
I rolled over, and my sleeping bag came with me. The hard ground jutted into my hip. An old football injury ached in my shoulder.
“Chase?” The tent-trailer door opened and closed with a gentle click. Esma wore a jacket over her sundress but must have been freezing.
“What is it?” I grumbled.
Esma zipped up her jacket and came over to my sleeping bag. She knelt on the ground next to me and took a deep breath before talking. “I wanted to say thank you for coming to help us.”
I leaned up on my elbow. “Yeah. You’re welcome.” In spite of myself, I felt my pulse race. Esma’s lips were rose-red in the starlight, and I knew from experience how soft they would be if they were pressed against mine. Her slim frame was small enough to slip into my sleeping bag with me. I began to sweat.
Esma bit her lower lip. “I also wanted to say I’m sorry. Not for hiding the fact that I was a vampire—I was only trying to protect you—but for taking you for granted these past two years. And”—she twisted a strand of her long, blonde hair around her finger—“for being bossy. I didn’t realize I was controlling until you said what you did in the truck this afternoon.” Esma pulled the hood of her jacket up, and its shadow concealed her beautiful face. “I’m sorry, Chase—for everything.” She turned to go.
“Wait,” I whispered, struggling to free myself from the tight bonds of the mummy bag. By the time I was disentangled, Esma was out of reach, and I had lost my nerve. She opened the door to the tent-trailer as silently as possible and went inside.
I threw my head back down in frustration. My heart beat like wild horses.
What had I almost done? Told Esma she was forgiven? Begged her to be mine again? Held her in my arms and smothered her with kisses?
Get it together, I told myself. Figure out what you want from life before you get anyone else involved.




A nerdy high school senior transforms into a vampire vixen who's unaware that her hunky date for prom is the slayer sent to destroy her.
Morgan Taylor-Jackson can't wait for high school to end. In six months she leaves for UCLA and says goodbye to La Jolla, California and her parents' messy divorce. But when Morgan is bitten by a four-year-old boy, she becomes infected with a mysterious condition. Fever, insomnia, and a new bustline are only the beginning; Morgan morphs from nerd to bombshell.
As far as Van Xander is concerned, all vampires are evil, even the ones who reject human sacrifice and call themselves Puritans. When Helsing Incorporated sends Van to La Jolla to investigate the local coven, Morgan is his prime target. Pretending to be interested in her, Van asks Morgan out and puts her through a series of tests to determine her killer nature.
Morgan is thrilled to be dating a hot guy like Van and falls for him hard. As Van strings Morgan along, he grows increasingly guilty. Morgan is kind, compassionate, and a gooey romantic. Just as Van's mind begins to change, evil forces threaten everything. When prom night arrives, there are only two ways out of the ballroom: death or immortality.



Louise Cypress believes in friendship, true love, and the everlasting power of books. She has never met a vampire, but she has been to a Love Sucks concert on Valentine’s Day. Like Morgan, Louise can often be found curled up with a romance novel on Saturday night, diet soda in hand, secretly wishing bustles were back in fashion. Louise lives in San Diego, California, where the beach is crowded and summer is immortal.
